How to Use Essential Oils

Updated: Feb 24

There is a wide variety of uses of essential oils day to day. My absolute favorite way to use essential oils is by diffusing them into the air through a diffuser! Oils work super-fast in the body! It takes 22 seconds for the molecules of the oils to reach the brain! Wow that's fast! It takes 2 minutes, and they will be found in your bloodstream. By 20 minutes they will affect EVERY cell in the body!


Topically

By putting the oils on topically, that means putting the essential oils right on your skin. You can put them on your feet, wrists, temples...wherever you need support! But watch out, avoid the eye area!

  • Many essential oils are safe and beneficial to use directly on the skin

  • Place oil directly on the desired area and massage in, repeat as desired

  • Apply on pulse points, and thin skin like temples, behind the ears, back of neck, wrist or chest

  • Rub oils on the feet, hands, and spine for specific needs

  • If you are using a "hot oil" you will want to dilute with a carrier oil first


Aromatically

Using the oils aromatically means diffusing them through a diffuser! You will add water and about 1-2 drops of your favorite essential oils into the diffuser and diffuse into the air! By diffusing oils is the fastest way to get oils into your system! Who would of thought that would be the fastest way into the body!!!

  • Healing therapy that utilizes the properties and aromas of essential plant oils

  • Influence mind, body and soul for physical and emotional health and well-being

  • Rub oils between your palms and inhale deeply

  • Add a few drops of oil to a bowl of hot water. Cover your head and bowl with a towel. Breathe deeply and slowly

  • Diffuse

  • Put a drop of oil in your hands, run them together, cup hands over nose/mouth and breathe deeply


Dietary

By using the dietary option, this is putting essential oils into your water or food! Young Living has a Vitality line used especially for this option! By using the oils in your food, the oils act like a supplement!

  • Place several drops of oil into a vegetarian gel capsule and swallow with water

  • Add oil to a glass of water, juice, yogurt, sweetener, or milk

  • Add oil to meals when cooking
